Wulftec picnic turns into school fundraiser

Wulftec picnic turns into school fundraiser

By Jessie Pelletier


On Saturday, June 3, Wulftec’s Social Club held a family picnic for its employees at the Ayer’s Cliff Fairground. Despite the cool, windy weather, everyone had a fun-filled day, with plenty of activities to choose from, cotton-candy for the little ones and a hot-dog supper for all to enjoy.

The Social Club, with Anne Courtemanche at its helm this year, organizes activities throughout the year for Wulftec employees. A trip to the sugar shack in the spring, an outing in the summer, a golf tournament in August and a Christmas party to end the year are a few of the activities offered by the Social Club every year.
With this year’s summer activity, the Social Club decided to give the employees the chance to meet and greet outside the work environment by inviting the kids, families and friends to join the fun. More than 250 people showed up, braving the cooler temperatures, to enjoy the day with colleagues and their children.

The town of Ayer’s Cliff, Wood’s restaurant, Lester as well as Marche Patry – Tradition in Ayer’s Cliff helped sponsor the event by providing barbecues, sausages, buns and condiments.
Additionally, Jocelyne Vanasse, with plenty of past experience volunteering for Children’s Wish Foundation events, came to Wulftec to help Social Club members make over 290 bags of cotton candy and Alain Houle was on duty in front of the grill on Saturday afternoon to cook the hot-dogs.
